Poinsettia Wishes

112316poinsettia

Hi Chris here and I am so excited to share this adorable Christmas Card! I just love these new stamps and papers from Dare 2B Artzy!

I started by matting my Holly Days paper onto coordinating card stock and attaching it to my card base.

I then stamped my Poinsettia Tangle stamp onto a piece of dictionary paper with the Pomegranate ink.

If you are an avid book person like me, and have a hard time tearing a page out a book I have a little hint for you.... go to your dollar store and buy a cheap dictionary...then you won't feel guilty for tearing out the pages.

I then fussy cut the stamped image and matted onto the coordinating red card stock and then fussy cut the matted image.  I added some liquid pearls to the center of my poinsettia and added the flower to my card, tucking in a few die cut holly leaves.

I then stamped my greeting and double matted the greeting into a banner and attached to the card.  I topped the poinsettia off with a coordinating ribbon bow.

So.... what have you stamped lately?

Sin City Stamps Love



Hi.Today I am happy to show off my love of Sin City Stamps.  They are under new ownership and finally announced their Design Team Call!  As I look back alot of my favorite projects were made when I was designing for Sin City Stamps!  The stamps always inspired me to create! So I want to share some of my favorite projects!  I started off showing you the canvas above created with Fairies & Blossoms Sets. 

 Below I have more fairies mixed with some Graphic 45 papers.   The fairies here are stamped on vellum  to create a transparent look to fairies.


Next is a cool layout I created with the nautical stamps!



One last layout showing some vintage stamps. 


Next are some of my other (non-card, non-layout )projects
My Alice in Wonderland Tea Cup.  





Next is a Canvas I created  using Sin City Stamps and die cuts.


Then I have this adorable Easter Tag


Then here are a few of my favorite cards.






I hope you are inspired to get stamping and thank you for letting me share my projects!

Thanks- Paisley Style

110916thanks Hi  today I would like to share my take on this month's challenge. To create this simple but stunning card I started by laying the stamps from my Paisley Bliss set out on my block.
I then ink my stamps using my Wild Orchid Ink, and stamped onto white card stock, rotating my stamp block as needed to fill my background. I then cut the card stock into 3 pieces and matted onto a piece of coordinating card stock. and then placed the matted images onto my card base.  I created a simple banner greeting using letter stickers and topped off my card with a double ribbon bow, some netting and a rose. I really love how the finished card turned out.

 Hope you are inspired to get creating! Chris

Dreams Come True

102616dreams
Hi!  Chris here and today I am sharing this adorable card I created using Dare 2B Artzy's new papers and Stamps! To create this card I started by matting 2 pieces of the Blissful Bloom paper (the A and B sides) onto dark blue card stock and then attached it to my card base.  I then stamped the Dream Catcher from the Dream Big Stamp Set onto white card stock.  I then used a scalloped circle punch to punch out the dream catcher and matted the scalloped circle on silver scalloped circle and then a dark blue scalloped circle. I added the scalloped circle onto the bottom of the card. I stamped my greeting from the Dream Big set and double matted the greeting onto the silver and then the blue card stock.  You can see how the tiny bit of silver really makes everything POP!

  I finished off the card by adding a silver bow and a white paper flower.  I did use a Tim Holtz Distress Marker to tint the edges of the flower!   I hope you are inspired to get stamping!
